Gingerbread

The house is not in bad shape, except for some peeling paint on the trim.  But, the yard needs work.

New Britain, Connecticut

straight out of a fairy-tale.

Hmmm! maybe just a little bit Jack, but the house is so pretty!! Could look spectacular as you say with a little tlc.

Halcyon said...

But it is sooooo cute! A little tlc, a mower and a tiller could help that yard out. :)

Kate said...

Happy to hear that Irene was not as wicked as predicted, Jack! The house would be perfect in San Francisco! Perhaps a little landscaping is in order also.

Luis Gomez said...

Lovely!

This house is really beautiful.

Sharon said...

Watching the news last night I got to see some of the damage in your state and New England in general. That storm was horrible. Hope you have electricity back again very soon.

It's like a storybook, fitting title!

Dawn said...

Are you sure that house is real?! It's so fairy-bookish!
(I think all it needs is some impatiens...;D)

Just delightful and I hope that you will be able to show us the improved landscape shortly!

Oh, I love it!really like in a fairy tale!

A fairy tale indeed -- maybe a haunted house, but whatever it's a lovely house, hope they get to the yard soon! Great shot for the day as always, Jack! Hope your week is off to a great start!

It's like a fairy tale indeed, even with its a bit neglected garden:)

Madge said...

The unkempt yard gives the house more character... as a Victorian it has seen a lot over the years, maybe the worst is not weeds. Hope you and yours were unscathed by Irene...

JM said...

The house is so beautiful that I wouldn't care about the yard if I could buy it. :-) It's a great setting.

The garden can wait. It takes years and years to make a garden anyway...

Lois said...

It looks like a big dollhouse! I love it.

jennyfreckles said...

It looks kind of out of scale - more like a doll's house than a real one. Very pretty shape though.

Winchester Daily Photos said...

Maybe it's just me, but it looks a little spooky!

RedPat said...

Wonderful house! Naturalized landscaping doesn't suit it. ;-))

EG Wow said...

Does Sleeping Beauty live there? She may be waiting for her prince to arrive. :)

Regina K said...

This does look like a gingerbread house. There is always one lawn on the block that looks like this.

Kate said...

I'm back again, Jack, to respond to the comment you made on my blog today. Now, I would NEVER pass off a stuffed bird for the real thing, and I'm happy to know that you took time to determine its authenticity. Go to my August 27th post to learn about the home of that bird (and other animals). http://mysantafe-kate.blogspot.com/2011/08/whoo-whoo-camera-critters.html

I would really enjoy fixing up a house like that- and the landscape.

Edita said...

this house is beautiful,but the garden needs some work ;)

Randy said...

Call HGTV's Curb Appeal! It could be so nice.

Farmchick said...

What a great place. Too bad it has no one to love it.

Nita Davis said...

A very enchanting house. Just imagine the stories it could tell.

Dianne said...

I would say a renovators delight Jack!! It looks like something out of a movie!

Mo said...

Could equally be a haunted house

VP said...

The yard may need some work, but the house is lovely.

Cildemer said...

So beautiful! Love it! Wouldn't be afraid to tend the garden!
Thanks for sharing your wonderful shot, Jack;o)

Have a nice and happy day****

Suzanne said...

I guess one thing at a time.

Leif Hagen said...

That's a wonderful house with dreamy architectural features! It would have 7 Boy Scout troops several days to get that yard back in shape....

Steffe said...

Great looking house.
